Reviews of Tango: My Childhood, Backwards and in High Heels by Justin Vivian Bond:


"A story that is personal, yet undeniably universal at the same time." ―Lambda Literary

“Bond’s fabulosity is matched by a trenchant wit, and [V’s] over-the-top stories are smartly edged with politics, sexual or otherwise.” ―New York Times

"A brief yet remarkably candid memoir of growing up different. . . Poignant and funny. . ." ―Kirkus
